Black Friday may be known for high-priced gadgets and technology deals, but this year, beauty retailers are giving the notorious shopping day a makeover. 

Sephora will be offering a slate of $10 deals on its website beginning Friday, with goodies ranging from Clarisonic brush heads to Smashbox primer. Ulta‘s Black Friday sale begins on Thursday and includes gems like Philosophy shower gel and Butter London nail polishes. (Try not to do your shopping at Thanksgiving dinner, though.) To add to the mix, big box retailers like Target and Macy’s are debuting new deals for Black Friday every day. 

Here’s a roundup of our picks for the best of the best:
